MATHIAS DAGUE I and
his wife ELIZABETH
The stones are starting to display the elements of time and so it is difficult to read the stones in the pictures. The stone on the left is that of Mathias and that on the right and on the bottom are those of his wife Elizabeth. They emigrated from PA to Ohio and are our ancestors.
Several descendents and other interested individuals from Franklin County, Ohio led a concerted effort to restore the cemetery in 2006. The entrance sign and picture of Mathias and Elizabeth's stones taken after the re-dedication follow:
Some of the early
Dague's are buried in this cemetery, including Mathias I and Elizabeth.
those buried here are listed below:
Mathias Dague I b. 6/25/1761 d. 2/16/1867
Elizabeth Swickard b. ca 1757 d. 9/7/1821 Aged 64y (some say her name was Glass, could she have first married Phillip Saltsman?)
This Dague Cemetery was established in 1822. There is no church associated with this cemetery. The Township Trustees currently maintain it. It was read in 1938 and possibly, more recently. In 1997, the Boy Scout Troop 776 of Gahanna created an index of burials by reading and listing stones that were still evident in the cemetery. To visit the site created on behalf of their efforts, PRESS HERE. We have found some errors in their translations primarily due to aging of the stones. The Cemetery is located West of Johnstown, Ohio near Gahanna along SR 62 in Franklin County, Ohio.
